James Faleke to Appeal Kogi Election Tribunal Ruling

Honourable James Abiodun Faleke of the All Progressives Congress is prepared to continue the legal battle of his claim to the gubernatorial seat of Kogi State. 

Abiodun Faleke
James Faleke, the running mate to the late All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant, Abubakar Audu, has said he will appeal the Federal Capital Territory Court ruling on his petition against Kogi State gubernatorial election that upheld the mandate of Governor Yahaya Bello.

Speaking to journalists at his Abuja residence, Faleke said although he would have to consult with his lawyers, he will be appealing Justice Halima Mohammed’s ruling.

Faleke said: "I watched the verdict of the tribunal on TV, one thing I can say is that, the judge’s have delivered their own judgement, I will consult my lawyers, upon which I am very certain that we will appeal the judgment.”

“I am not a lawyer but I can say that it (the judgment) is not in tune with our constitution,”

He said the court is wrong to have ruled that he had no locus standi in the case.

However, a non-perturbed Faleke asked his guest to find something to eat.

“Please there is food, find something to eat. We are celebrating!” he said.

A Federal Capital Territory Court on Monday, June 6, ruled dismissed an application by Faleke challenging APC’s nomination of Yahaya Bello as governor of Kogi state.

The party following the death of it former flag bearer for the state, Abubakar Audu had asked Faleke to stand in as a running mate to Bello.
